Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat 2 showed Rudy Giuliani in a VERY compromising position, and despite Giuliani's objections, they appeared in the film in full.
For a reminder of just how compromising it was, here are the scenes:
Now that it's awards season, Borat 2 has received quite a few nods, including Sacha Baron Cohen and Maria Bakalova as nominees for Best Actor/Actress In A Musical Or Comedy Film, and the film itself for Best Musical Or Comedy Film.
And Sacha Baron Cohen has a rock-solid plan to make sure he wins.
Wawaweewah! I'm shocked and humbled to be nominated for 3 Golden Globes, and congratulations to the incredible… https://t.co/tQ82dD6KOk— Sacha Baron Cohen (@Sacha Baron Cohen)1612366259.0
Cohen's extremely pointed jab at Giuliani comes on the heels of Giuliani's attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election on behalf of former President Donald Trump.

In the two weeks after Borat 2 dropped, Giuliani was also involved in the Four Seasons Total Landscaping mishap.
He also had hair dye stream down the sides of his head while he shouted "do they think we're fools?" in a display of irony that even Alanis Morisette would have been jealous of.

Soon, however, Giuliani may not have any standing to fight for Cohen.
The New York State Bar Association has begun an inquiry into removing Giuliani from its membership, essentially revoking his ability to practice law in the state of New York.
"NYSBA has received hundreds of complaints in recent months about Mr. Giuliani and his baseless efforts on behalf of President Trump to cast doubt on the veracity of the 2020 presidential election and, after the votes were cast, to overturn its legitimate results," the Association said in its official statement.
"As widely reported, these efforts included the commencement and prosecution of court actions in multiple states without any evidentiary basis whatsoever. In each and every instance, these actions were appropriately dismissed by the courts in which they were brought."
"As the nation's largest voluntary state bar association, NYSBA has a responsibility to defend and protect the rule of law. Based on these complaints, and the statement Mr. Giuliani uttered shortly before the attack on the Capitol, NYSBA President Scott M. Karson has launched an inquiry pursuant to the Association's bylaws to determine whether Mr. Giuliani should be removed from the membership rolls of the Association."

The Golden Globes will air virtually on February 28th, 2021, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting from opposite coasts.
We will see if the results hold up to Cohen's determination.
